Leicester SEND (Special Educational Needs) Improvement Board: written statement of action
16th October 2018 | By Liz Mattock | Posted in Children
The Leicester City joint Ofsted and Care Quality Commission (CQC) local area SEND inspection took place between 30 April 2018 and 4 May 2018, to judge the effectiveness and implementation of the special educational needs and disability reforms as set out in the Children and Families Act 2014. The findings were published on 26th June 2018.
The inspection was led by one of Her Majesty’s Inspectors from Ofsted and the inspectors considered three key lines of enquiry
• identifying children and young people’s special education needs and/ or disabilities
• meeting the needs of those children and young people with special educational needs and / or disabilities
• improving outcomes for children and young people with special educational needs and / or disabilities
In each category, inspectors identified strengths and areas for development, concluding that there were significant areas of weakness in the local area’s practice and therefore requiring Leicester City Council and the Clinical Commissioning Group to jointly prepare and submit a joint Written Statement of Action.
The Leicester City Written Statement of Action sets out how local partners will the address the areas of weakness identified and how these will be demonstrated. This work will align to the additional focused work in the local SEND Strategy and delivery will be overseen by SEND Improvement Board.
